I *HATE* it when I make a typo that isn't obvious and may throw people off.
Of course, I meant that "the problem is more likely something about the RX02
or M8256". Or... ya know... the backplane could be the culprit here. But the
important point... the RL02 definitely works and loads correctly as long as
the RX02 is powered off.

Yes, but.... if that's the case... why does the RX02 work perfectly.
Separately, each one (RL02 and RX02) works just fine, boots an OS, etc. But
if they are both on... RL02 faults after spinup.
Thanks for the tips!
